Toby Arnold (born 11 September 1987) is a New Zealand rugby union player. Arnold currently plays for French club Lyon[1] after signing in 2013.[2][3]

Arnold generally plays in the fullback and wing positions.

He notably played for the Bay of Plenty Steamers in New Zealand's National Provincial Championship.

He has also played for the All Blacks Sevens team, making his debut in 2009. A year later he was included in the squad to the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi.[4]

Arnold gave up on his 2012 Olympics dream after a serious knee injury in that year left him rethinking his future.[5]
